INTRODUCTORY NOTE

I shall lay down some terms as if they came out of nowhere. I want to show that this model can look like any other and that it has at least the same powers. After a few pages I will turn to discuss some of its sources and motivations, and more of them in chapter IVAd.


Webpage Navigation

This page is the main table of contents for A Process Model.  Each chapter has a navigation bar at the beginning and end with symbols that indicate Home, Next Page, and Previous Page.  Clicking on the Home symbol will get you back to this page.  Clicking on the Next or Previous Page symbols will move you to the adjacent page.  (If there is no next or previous page, then that symbol is omitted.)

Footnotes are indicated in the text as raised numbers.   Each footnote reference is hyperlinked to the associated footnote text, so if you click on the footnote number you will jump to that footnote.  When you're done reading the footnote, you can either press the Back button on your browser, or click on the special "back" link that follows each footnote's text.  Either way you will return to where you came from.
